George is a 15-year-old student of Rotorua Lakes High School that will be competing in Canoe/Kayak at the Buenos Aires 2018 Olympic Youth Games.

Career highlight: Making the New Zealand under 18 Canoe Slalom team at just 14 years old.

How did you get into your sport? I grew up surrounded by the sport, dad used to jam me between his legs when he went out paddling and I live by Kaituna river.

What do you love about the sport? All the good times with friends and family in training, after competing and just on the water in general is pretty awesome.

What inspires you? I want to be my best, push the sport and have fun. Big thanks to my family and friends for supporting me with everything
